Go up one level in this thread

Maybe when you tell Rebel to use 2 MB RAM, it uses 1 MB for a main hash table
and 1 MB for a pawn hash table. Then when you tell it to use 2.5 MB RAM, it uses
2 MB for a main hash table and 512k for a pawn hash table.

This is one of many possible explanations.

As for rating improvement vs. hash table size improvement, I said "convince me,"
not "tell me." There's a reason for that.
